An Entrepreneurial DNA

Since 2012, the DTC team has invested more than $1.25B in 140+ early-stage teams building technologies the world runs on. Nine of those companies have gone public and more than 65 have been acquired by companies including Amazon, Apple, Cisco, Dell, Intel, Palo Alto Networks, Microsoft, and VMWare.

Our approach to partnering with founders is inescapably influenced by the leadership of Michael Dell, who, as founder and CEO, has lived every stage of the entrepreneurial journey. Empathy for the founder experience is innate to us.

I remember sitting down early on with the DTC team for the first time and walking through how Immuta would change the way technologies get built. They instantly understood the potential of what we’re building.”
